The now-cancelled US tour would have been the band’s first headline tour across the country since 2019, and would have been in support of their latest album, ‘Truth Decay’. You Me At Six would have been supported by Mothica and Wolf & Bear during their run of shows in September and October.
The Weybridge quintet’s new album ‘Truth Decay’ was released in February after a two-week delay due to vinyl production issues. It features the singles ‘Deep Cuts’, ‘heartLESS’, ‘No Future? Yeah Right’, ‘Mixed Emotions (I Didn’t Know How To Tell You What I Was Going Through)’, and ‘:mydopamine’.
‘Truth Decay’ is the band’s eighth album and sees them return to their emo roots. Speaking about it to NME, frontman Josh Franceschi said: “There’s nothing better than healthy competition. There’s a very obvious revival of the scene that has become really poignant and I just saw a lot of other people doing it and thought, they can’t do it like us. They woke up a sleeping giant.”
